Preparing your environment for modern open source Java libraries and frameworks using Git and Maven, throwing in Tomcat as a bonus2
In my investigations into jWebWSockets, Kaazing, Atmosphere, CometD 2 and other frameworks I came to understand that in order to get these frameworks installed, integrate them into my custom applications or run the samples to go with these products, it would be convenient if not essential to have an environment with Maven and Git operational – and having Tomcat ready to run helps too.
So I decided to set up these tools – and write a short article with some hints for future reference for me and anyone who might be interested. First of all, let me tell you that it took far shorter and far less trouble than I anticipated. It really was easy to have my environment prepared for big and beautiful things. In subsequent posts I will explain how to load and run the Atmosphere demos as well as the CometD 2 samples – leveraging the Maven and Git (and Tomcat) environment discussed in this article.
